For an hour and a half tonight, Jay Latham of Grand Cru Selections will offer a lineup of wines that in every way transcends this missive. But allow me to get lyrical.
This is wine you need to sit down for — wait — wine you need to get up and dance for. This is wine to raise your voice to. Post a pic like WTF, too. IMO OMG. Glou glou y'all. Family: This is wine sublime. Can't blink. And (ostensibly) the cornice of the mind's built experience.
This is not Wine 101.
No doubt, it is incumbent upon us to sell bottles. We're a shop. But sometimes (more and more, all the time) we hear the call of a more authentic imperative: to introduce great wine and great wine professionals to beautiful people just like you. No strings attached.
Without Jay and his ilk, we could not do what we do. So enough hype. Enough noise. Tonight, we dine.
